JAMES BOND: LICENSE TO QUOTE!

JAMES BOND: LICENSE TO QUOTE!

THE QUOTABLE DOUBLE-0 SEVEN!

1500 HUMOROUS QUOTATIONS ABOUT THE WORLD’S MOST FAMOUS SECRET AGENT!

NOW AVAILABLE IN BOTH UK AND US EDITIONS


License to ‘Quote’ is the first book of humorous quotations solely dedicated to the ever-expanding universe surrounding James Bond 007. This volume — of 1500 light-hearted quote — uniquely focuses on humorous comments made about 007 rather than direct quotes from the Bond films or books.

“Bond has no sense of humour, telling only one joke in all 14 books (in Goldfinger) — and it isn’t very funny).” Anthony Horowitz in The Daily Telegraph (2008)

“I’ve always been fascinated by Bond’s gadgets. The guy who gave them to him — ’Q' — must have been psychic. He always gave him exactly what he bloody well wanted.” Eddie Izzard


PER COMMANDERBOND.NET

License to ‘Quote’ is all over the lighter side of Double-0 Seven like a cheap safari suit on Roger Moore. Bond’s life & legend, books & movies, enemies & lovers, cars & gadgets all come in for close inspection. 007 is as much a sitting target for defecation by the sardonic snipers in the press as an object of deification by the eulogistic empathists populating the fansites.

License to ‘Quote’ turns the tables on the world’s favourite spy and turns the spotlight on him. A veritable Who’s Who of observers and commentators — from all over the globe — take dead aim at James Bond: man & myth, superspy & superstar.

Comical contributions come from his creators, his biographers, his critics, his fans, his imitators and from a wide selection of media sources over the last 50 years.
